  1. The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance- Making Solid State Lighting a Reality Dale Work, chair Philips

  2. Next Generation Lighting Initiative • NGLI – what is it? • 2002 context (107th Congress) • 2003 context (108th Congress) • 2004 context (108th Congress) • NGL Industry Alliance – what is it? • 2003 context • 2004 context

  3. The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance What Is It? • Alliance of for-profit corporations formed to accelerate Solid State Lighting (SSL) development and commercialization through government-industry partnership • Charter – Support of Inorganic and Organic based SSL: • Public Advocacy for SSL and Next Generation Lighting Initiative (yes, we lobby for SSL) • Promotion and support of DOE’s ongoing assessment of SSL potential, the state of SSL technology, and DOE’s SSL R&D Program (we work to be a good partner today) • Facilitation of communication between NGLIA members and other parties with a substantial interest in SSL and the Next Generation Lighting Initiative

  4. The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance - Making Solid State Lighting a Reality Alliance members at end of 2003 (also the founding members since May, 2003): Cree, Inc. Corning, Inc. Eastman Kodak Company General Electric Company GELcore, LLC Lumileds Lighting, LLC Osram Opto Semiconductors Philips Electronics North America Corporation

  5. The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance Why do we exist? • Lighting & emerging SSL for-profit corporations need a forum for communication and collaboration: • Recognizable body for DOE contact: • Government – Industry Collaboration Model • Feedback on DOE roadmapping, R&D strategies • “reasonable access” to IP generated under DOE R&D • Collaborative lobbying for increased DOE funding, and for promoting SSL interests to the federal government, with or without an energy bill

  6. The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance Structure • Separate from, but managed by NEMA; no NEMA membership required • All members have one vote on Board of Directors • BOD annually elects Chair and Vice Chair • 2003 Chair: Dale Work – Philips • 2003 Vice Chair: Todd Graves – GE • Annual dues set to cover public advocacy expenses + NEMA administrative & coordination expenses – divided equally among member companies

  7. NGL Industry Alliance and NEMA • What is NEMA? • National trade association of 400 electrical manufacturers representing $100 billion in domestic shipments • Activities: Standards, Market Information, Government Advocacy, Product Promotion • Eight Product Divisions Covering Commercial, Industrial, Medical, Electric Utility, and Consumer Markets • Lighting Systems Division comprised of Lamp, Ballast, Luminaire, Emergency Lighting, Lighting Controls, and Solid State Lighting Sections

  8. NGL Industry Alliance and NEMA What is the relationship of the NGL Alliance to NEMA? • financial and legal oversight • administration • government relations What is the relationship of the NGL Alliance to the NEMA Solid State Lighting Section?

  9. NGL Industry Alliance and the DOE • What is the relationship of the NGL Alliance to the DOE? • substantial, but only informal interactions today • If the 2003 “final version” of NGLI were to pass in 2004, would our Industry Alliance be the one chosen by the Secretary of Energy? • not necessarily, but …

  10. NGL Industry Alliance and the DOE • … not necessarily, but we work to make ourselves as attractive as possible • open, but active membership • open to companies active in the U.S. in SSL • active on both technical and lobbying fronts • partnering / cooperating so far as possible with the DOE today*

  11. The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance How can you join, or find out more? • While any member can help, a very direct way to access accurate information is by contacting Kyle Pitsor at NEMA: • kyl_pitsor@nema.org • Also feel free to reach: • Dale Work: dale.work@philips.com • Todd Graves: graves@research.ge.com

  12. The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance IP Position • To make SSL a reality – industry as a whole needs commercially viable access to pre-competitive IP generated under DOE funding • NGLIA also recognizes the need to give non-profit entities an incentive to develop high impact IP • DOE’s “SECA” (Solid State Energy Conversion Alliance) had similar needs – developed compromise system under “exceptional circumstances” provisions of Bayh-Dole act • NGLIA supports “SECA” – like approach to IP for SSL R&D • Inventors retain rights to IP • NGLIA members active in SLL received first option to negotiate non-exclusive licenses and royalty payments

  13. The Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance Major 2003 Activities • Public Advocacy, Lobbying: • Energy Policy Act of 2003; Section 905 authorizing NGLI and significant increase in DOE funding • Appropriations Committee – Initial Administration request for DOE’s SSL program: $5M; reported out at $7.75M, even in absence of NGLI Authorization • Continuing efforts to increase DOE funding • SSL Technology Demonstration Day – Sep 11, 2003: • NGLIA member demonstrations in Senate Office Building
